This ring was a bit of a mystery, but I think I’ve got it solved! It’s a beauty, set in the center with a 1 carat bright moonstone with great adularescence and a lovely blue hue; around the cabochon center stone are set with 8 pearls in shades of brown and gray, they are 2.7 mm in diameter. The top of this ring is made in 18 karat gold and the split shank is in 14 karat gold. I believe that this ring started life off as something else, most likely a stick pin or part of a brooch, made in about 1880, but it has been more recently made over as a ring. The ring is lovely and well made, it measures 11 mm north to south and 11 mm across, it sits 8 mm off the finger and narrows to 3 mm at the back of the band. This ring is a size 5.5 and weighs 5 grams. It’s marked with the French export mark of the shell and has been carefully acid tested.
